Tea country, colourful local villages, and sweeping hillside views by day. Luxury resorts and spa treatments by morning and night. This is the tour for travellers to delve into the heart of Sri Lanka — the social culture, the industry, the past and the future — all couched in a framework of rest and rejuvenation. The Hill Circuit Tour journeys deep into the historic and world-famous tea regions that brought us Dilmah and Ceylon silver tip tea. Then indulge in spa treatments and leisurely meanderings amid deluxe resort grounds designed Geoffrey Bawa, the island’s celebrated yet humble architect who rejuvenated Sri Lanka — and much of Asia — with his innovative and lush Tropical-Modern designs.

Dates TBA – rescheduled from 2020

Team members from a number of NSW Northern Rivers Cricket Clubs will be touring Sri Lanka in April 2020. The tour is primarily by invitation only, but if you are a social cricketer, easy-going, and up for fun and adventure, feel free to apply. The Cricket Tour will be on a luxury bus with a local English-speaking guide, driver, and porter. You will be staying at some of Sri Lanka’s best hotels – at a much better rate than you will get through any booking site. All Breakfasts and dinners are included.

The Bawa Architecture Tour

June 3 – 12, 2021

We arrive at the Galle Face – one of Asia’s most celebrated colonial-era grand hotels. We visit Bawa House and walk through the magnificent gardens of Lunaganga, Bawa’s weekend retreat. Join us on the Bawa Architecture Tour and stay at award-winning Bawa hotels. One in the heritage-listed trading port of Galle, where the old Dutch trading warehouses are being renovated. We have lunch at the incredible luxury villas of Claughton House.

Back up the coast to Kandy, the capital of what was Ceylon.  We spend two nights based at the Bawa inspired Dambula Lake while exploring the ancient cave temples and hill fort in the Cultural Triangle. Best for last is a tour of the Hotel Heritance Kandalama – Bawa’s most celebrated work. It is cut into a cliff face and covered in Jungle. One night in the Bawa Inspired Negombo Blue which is only 20 minutes from the airport.

The Ultimate Tour

September 2 – 15, 2021

The Ultimate Tour is The Hill Tour – with extras! Instead of heading straight to Sigiriya, we go north from Colombo to Puttalam. Here we can spend a restful day at the beach before heading inland to Anuradapura. This is the start of the cultural triangle, an ancient capital of Sri Lanka and a World Heritage site.

Then after the tea country, another extra is Yala National Park, one of the most popular destinations and home to Sri Lanka’s incredible wildlife.

This tour is 14 days to make the most of the extended trip. There is still plenty of down time and enough double nights not to get over extended. We stay at excellent hotels.
